Compared to the first time I ever shopped with Fashion Nova, the company has become progressively worse in quality and customer service.

During an IG rant I found out that I wasn’t the only person of my IG fam that felt strongly about Fashion Nova, their terrible customer service and shady business practices.
Terrible customer service, slow shipping and a sh*tty return policy (a.k.a. no return policy) is what made me decide to no longer shop at Fashion Nova.
I tried to give them a chance when the Cardi B collection dropped…

Thank you everybody for your support .The line sold out but we will RESTOCK NEXT WEEK! My inspiration was “RUNWAY” what are things i will see on the runway ? YSL ,Moschino,Gucci,Mugler,Chanel ,Balmain .Fashion to me is not always tight dresses and tights it’s about STATEMENTS! FASHIONNOVA X CARDIB
If there’s one thing that I love more than cute affordable clothes it’s Cardi B. When the Cardi B x Fashion Nova collection dropped on November 15th I made sure I stayed up to purchase. The collection sold out quickly but I was ecstatic that I at least got 4 cute pieces that I really loved.
Fashion Nova shipped my items just one day after placing my order
Amazing right? Not quite. When I received my package I was shocked to see that only one item was in the package. I was one of many people who ordered items from the Cardi collection who DID NOT receive more or one of the items that they ordered.
It’s rumored that Fashion Nova keeps out of stock items on their website allowing customers to “purchase” them only to end up keeping their money and issuing store credit (for item’s they didn’t have in the first place.)
Considering this was a big launch and a megastar like Cardi B’s name was attached to it Fashion Nova did issue refunds for unreceived items instead of the usual store credit. Also, the company was allegedly moving warehouses at the time which somehow effected inventory counts.
Fashion Nova’s infamous return policy:
My biggest issue with Fashion Nova is the fact that they put their relationships with influencers over paying customers.
The brand is the fastest growing and most searched clothing brand as of 2018. They have leveraged social media and to advertise their products to consumers who they could give af less about. It’s very obvious that the brand is more focused on the influencers who get paid to advertise their clothing rather than the everyday people who spend their hard earned money to shop with them. Whether these influencers want to believe it or not, they are the middlemen for helping Fashion Nova scam consumers.
I am not longer shopping with Fashion Nova because I’m not in the business giving my coins to places that don’t value me. If I can give up going to non-black owned nail salons (if you know you know) then not shopping at Fashion Nova will be a piece of cake. I’ve had much better experiences with their competitors who seem to still value paying customers.
